Slovenia kept their FIFA World Cup qualifying chances alive and dealt a blow to Albania's hopes of finishing first in Group E thanks to Kevin Kampl's 19th-minute goal.

Kampl's long-range effort and Samir Handanovič's fantastic performance in the Slovenia goal kept out Albania, who could have moved to within two points of leaders Switzerland, held 4-4 by Iceland. Instead they are down to third, five points behind Switzerland, one adrift of Norway, level with Iceland and only one in front of Slovenia in a section with five possible qualifiers and three rounds of matches remaining.
